Pipelle endometrial biopsy is a minimally invasive procedure to obtain a small tissue sample from the lining of the uterus (endometrium). It involves using a thin, flexible tube called a pipelle to remove a small amount of tissue from the endometrium.
The procedure is usually performed in a doctor’s office or clinic and does not require any anaesthesia. During the biopsy, you will lie on your back with your feet in stirrups, similar to a pelvic exam. Your doctor will then insert the pipelle into your uterus through your cervix.
The pipelle is gently moved back and forth to collect a small tissue sample from the endometrium. The procedure takes only a few minutes, and you may experience mild cramping or discomfort. However, most women find it tolerable.
Pipelle endometrial biopsy helps diagnose conditions that affect the endometrium, such as abnormal bleeding, irregular periods or postmenopausal bleeding. The procedure can help identify the presence of endometrial cancer or pre-cancerous conditions.
Pipelle endometrial biopsy may also monitor the effectiveness of hormone therapy, such as estrogen replacement therapy, to check for signs of infection in the endometrium.
Most women experience mild cramping during the procedure, but it is usually well-tolerated and over quickly.
You should avoid sexual intercourse, douching or using tampons for a few days before the procedure. Your healthcare provider will give you specific instructions based on your individual needs.
The most common risks associated with a Pipelle endometrial biopsy include mild bleeding or cramping and infection.
You may experience mild cramping or spotting, but these symptoms usually resolve quickly. You can resume daily activities after consultation with your doctor.
The biopsy results typically take some days up to a week. Your healthcare provider will contact you after the results are available and schedule a follow-up appointment to discuss them with you.
